Visited as part of the red wine tram route and the waitress was appallingly rude from the outset. To begin with, there was no explanation as to what the tasting entailed and once we had the waitresses attention there was minimal explanation about the winery...More

Well, who’s the star? Well, Joyce was a brilliant wine guide, but the wines shine equally for themselves. Compared to some of the other more commercial wineries Chamonix looks a bit old school but punches in a league light years above the competition. We’ve been...More

Chamonix had some of the best wines of our wine tram experience. We visited on a colder, rainy day, and the tasting room was very cozy. We really enjoyed our stop here. Also, we ended up missing the wine tram while purchasing some wine, but...More

We ate here and had a wonderful meal. We just got here in time before the kitchen closed (3PM). I would highly recommend this restaurant. I think it was one of the best we visited while in S Africa.

We visited 6 wineries on our tour and this was worst one. The wine tour we was one had a special deal that they did not honor, the only place that didn't. So we got one less glass than expected. The wines were good, but...More
